Players to Watch
DaQuan Jeffries has been in the league for three seasons, and this six-foot-five guard looks to crack the Knicks roster to help in the wing rotation through the NBA Summer League. During his time with the Houston Rockets in the 2021-22 season, he registered 4.9 points and 3.2 rebounds in 20 minutes of playing time.
Isaiah Roby has been a steady center with the Oklahoma City Thunder from 2019-2022 before getting claimed in the waivers by the San Antonio Spurs. His best averages were in the 2021-22 season doing 10.1 points and 4.8 rebounds in 21.1 minutes of playing time.
Jaden Springer is in his third year with the Philadelphia 76ers, and he has a prime chance to crack the main rotation in this NBA Summer League stint now that James Harden has requested a trade. In 16 games during the 2022-23 season, he was able to contribute 2.6 points in 5.6 minutes.
Javonte Smart has been looking for his home in the NBA for the past two seasons, but his stints with the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat were both short-lived. His best numbers were in the four games he played for the Heat in the 2021-22 season, making five points per game.
